US Secret Service agents rush to a home in Israel and escort a young man living there into a black limousine. Then they enter a movie theater and pull out a young woman. Then it's on to a nightclub where they remove another young woman.
What's going on? It seems that it's after closing time at McDonald's, and a late night opening is needed. All three work there, the destination of the convoy of black limos carrying a special passenger. After checking the meat and the fries, the agents give the go-ahead to the three to serve one of the new Big America hamburgers to the passenger.
Who is he? You've probably guessed by now.
McDonald's operates 170 restaurants in Israel, 40 of which are under kosher supervision. According to Wikipedia, all use kosher beef, but the ones not under supervision are open on Shabbat and Jewish holidays and also serve dairy products.
